Not technically food

This is technically not a picture of food, but the first of MANY afternoon teas that I sat through. My aunt recently got really interested in making tea and tea accessories, so she's always having people try the tea that she made, and constantly having tea parties with other random socialites and tea industry-related people. This is the house-on-top-of-a-mountain of one of them, a tea grower. The green that you see is a panoramic window that opens out onto the mountain behind his house. On the floor is tatami, where one sits while he carefully brews and pours the tea. In the little cubby holes are all sorts of tea pots, scoups, measuring things, containers...etc.
